I love the views in the Olympic region. In every season there is something beautiful, peaceful and serene about the Adirondacks. If I wasn't training in the winter, I'd be snowboarding at Whiteface. I also started learning to play acoustic guitar 2 years ago. It has a special connection for me to my mom, who passed away when I was very young, and I still carry her guitar pick. Otherwise, I love traveling, cooking and photography. I have also been learning to speak German over the past 5 years since meeting my husband (German Bobsledder: Christian Poser).
